Both the San Jose Sharks and the Tampa Bay Lightning found the guy expendible, so what do the Flyers see in this guy that makes them keep Matt Carle around for as long as they have---that`s what I would dearly like to know? In my opinion the guy is caught totally out of position more times than not, he gets caught up ice more often than not, he allows the opposing player to go free in the defensive zone more often than not and in the final analysis, the Flyers most definitely have to let this guy go in the offseason. In game three of the current series against the Devils, he wasn't able to cover Zach Parise on the go-ahead goal by New Jersey in the third period and this evening in an all-important game four, he allowed the Devils Petr Sekora to get away and tie the contest 2-2 in the opening period. In game two in Philadelphia won by New Jersey 4-1, Carle was a -2 on the plus/minus chart. The guy is a definite liability on the back end for the Flyers and here's hoping Holmgrem has the intelligence to see what the Sharks, Lightning and myself see and send this guy packing once and for all. Amen!
For the record, Flyer fans can only hope James Van Riemsdick is sent packing as well. The guy is as useless as two tits on a bull!
